    232: Scratch House

    232: Scratch House

    Tony Howe is Roy Elam's right hand man at Donna Jean in San Diego. He's also the founder and creator of Scratch House; a local artisanal vegan cheese, charcuterie and sauce company that's always pushing the culinary limits!
    Tony's love for cooking started when he was younger; his dad was in the Marine Corps, which didn't allow him to be at home with his family as much as he would've liked. Because of this, Tony started watching cooking shows and learning how to cook for his family.
    Today, Tony has almost obsessed over perfecting the techniques and recipes for his vegan meats and cheeses, which are now being used in several San Diego restaurants and pop-ups.
    In this episode, Tony talks about the science behind creating the perfect vegan cheese, and how his methods have changed over time, and with time (with fermentation).

    231: Victims of the Coronavirus

    231: Victims of the Coronavirus

    Yi Ping Lai grew up in China and explains the connection between the over-population of homeless dogs and the dog meat trade. She tells her heartwarming story of how she grew up viewing dogs as a threat in China, and how she overcame her fear when she moved to America.
    Today, Yi Ping is vegan and the founder of World of Angels Foundation; the US-based non-profit dedicated to alleviating the suffering of homeless companion animals in China by funding existing partner sanctuaries, establishing new sanctuaries, and ending the cruelty of the meat trade in China. Now, with the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, approximately 50,000 companion animals have been stranded in homes with no food or water due to travel restrictions and quarantine of their "owners". Yi is working hard to provide food and water for these animals, or place them in forever homes before it's too late.

    After the quarantine is lifted, Yi Ping and her team will go to China to rescue as many dogs as they can, to place them into sanctuaries and safe homes. To do this, they need to raise at least another $5000. To donate to the organization and help these dogs receive homes, visit: https://woafoundation.org/donate-now

    230: Bad Jesus

    230: Bad Jesus

    Alexander Bvck is a sober animal rights activist, triathlete and musician, but things weren't always this way. Alex grew up in Northern Los Angeles and did a lot of acting as a kid which allowed him to live a much different life than most children his age. Looking back on his life, he realized that he may have developed some personality traits during this time that may have influenced some of his actions later in life.
    Alex was exposed to veganism and vegetarianism in the punk scene as a teen, and as 16 years old, decided to give up all meat. At one point in his early adulthood, he went back to eating animals, and when he came to a point where he wanted to stop, he dealt with the same sort of addiction and peer pressure associated with his consumption of alcohol or other substances.
    After watching Okja, Alex went vegetarian over night.
    Tune in to hear Alexander's entire story, including what he continues to do to fight for the animals today, how he maintains his sobriety and sanity, and where you can hear his band "Bad Jesus" play!

    229: Jane Unchained

    Jane Velez-Mitchell has been vegan longer than some of you have been alive; she was never served meat as a child, despite her Puerto Rican upbringing. Later in life, Jane went to NYU and graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, which later led her to work with K-CAL TV, CNN, Warner Bros. and many more. Over time, these platforms have allowed Jane to have a louder voice for the animals, which led to even further opportunities with Mercy for Animals, PETA, VegNews Magazine and so many more!
    Today, Jane's most recent project is New Day, New Chef, which can be found on Amazon Prime.

    228: Vegan Athlete Wear

    Janet Safiuallah has been an working out most of her life. She has competed in bikini competitions and, like many of us at one time, didn't think she could build muscle on a vegan diet. A friend of hers in the gym, who was working out just as hard as Janet mentioned she was vegan, which sparked Janet's interest in the lifestyle. Soon after, she saw What the Health, and decided to give it a try.
    Today, Janet owns the all vegan, sustainable activewear company, Vegan Athlete Wear, which is most known for the "Vegan Booty" leggings and shorts. The company has recently expanded to include more tops and sports bras for females, and has even added a men's line to the collection!

Customer Reviews

Caragoldenleaf ,


All for spreading the love and reaching more vegans but I’m conflicted by the host’s views. For talking to so many great people, a lot doesn’t seem to resonate with her. Don’t eat animals but using animals in laboratories is ok with her.

Israothentik ,

This is Awesome and helpful
